. apparently james clapper the director of national intelligence, the boss of the cia director testified in closed door hearings last week to the intelligence committees and he said he didn't know who had altered the talking points. he didn't know. he's the head of the intelligence community, and then on monday his office, the office of the director of national intelligence came out with a timeline that said in fact they did it. so i mean there is a kind of keystone cops quality to this but it's in the funny, because of course four people died and there is a question about why the american people were misled back in september just days after the attack and led to believe that it was the result of a response to the video by a spontaneous mob when in fact it was as the result of a premeditated terror attack. jon: right. on that point i mean some have suggested that this is, you know, in some ways maybe bigger than watergate. you've been in washington a longtime, nobody died in watergate. we've got a situation here in which four people were killed. >> yeah, i mean, look there are two ways o

tenure as director of the c.i.a. and secretary of defense, i have truly been privileged to meet and work with thousands of professionals who have made this fight their fight, who have put their lives on the line for their country and who have built the most effective global counterterrorism network the world has ever seen. their work, i believe, has made the american people safer. the united states more secure. and has put al qaeda on the defensive. let me describe some of the progress that has been achieved in this fight against al qaeda. first of all, with respect to core al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, and that's where the leadership of al qaeda after 9/11 found refuge. our military forces, our intelligence professionals, our diplomats, our development experts have taken the fight to al qaeda's leadership. first through dramatically expanded counterterrorism operations on the afghanistan-pakistan border. and second, through a renewed, revitalized and properly resourced effort to help build an afghanistan that can secure and govern itself. and that's the fundamental mission in af

't that the cia change? they're the ones who edited the talking points so that it wouldn't say al qaeda and i think they used the word to protect their sources, it would say extremist. they made that edit, which to me again seems to go back to the intelligence community. it's not that susan rice got a long list of talking points and said, ooh, i don't want to say al qaeda. let me cross that out. i'm going to use the word extremist. she was given talking point that is removed that word al qaeda and put extremist. isn't that correct? >> who in the administration said susan rice should be the person out there talking about this in the first place? >> so you just don't like her? >> there was the real time information -- no. the real time information that our consulate was under attack. and i'll tell you what bothers me is that someone in the white house situation room or at the state department or the pentagon said it's not worth it. we can't go in and help them. and to understand how long the attack continued, that's really troublesome. the fact that the united states cannot respond within an ho
